Knowing that Aaron Walker had been able to obtain legal representation, I’ve been waiting for this day to come. Walker’s attorney, Reginald Bours, has been retained to fight back against Kimberlin’s bogus peace order which effectively curtailed Walker’s free speech rights.
Stacy McCain has been all over this story and provides the current details HERE. Scroll down through the post for updates. I would recommend you get up to speed if you aren’t already.
The Kimberlin story is also tied to the SWATting story, which has gained much more traction. Governor Sarah Palin even weighed in on the SWATting story during a recent speech in Las Vegas at the RightOnline conference.
As the Brett Kimberlin saga begins to hit the mainstream media (ABC News, CNN, etc.), we have to examine the “heat” that is being brought to bear against the left-wing smear job of conservative bloggers.
I could go on and on and on, but this is a story that CANNOT DIE until the mainstream media focuses on it. Conservative bloggers are under attack and this attack is being funded by prominent, left-wing Democrats.
What caught my eye in the DU thread, however, was not Alexandrovna’s defenses of Kimberlin, but rather the biography of himself Kimberlin had published — quoted in Comment #15 on the thread — while promoting his band, Epoxy:
Epoxy arose out of the hellish depths of Brett’s time in prison for exercising his First Amendment rights to speech and political activity. Without any trial, Brett was hauled off to federal prison after being targeted by right-wingers who wanted to punish him for being a musician, writing a book and speaking out about politics.
All things told, it’s very hard to understand the ruthlessness of the left and how they are willing to cast aside all semblance of reason to enact their ideology. As citizens, we see it so often we’ve become immune to it. We dismiss it with an “oh well”, without fully understanding the depth of their resolve. Any argument against it is deemed “laughable” on its face by our vaunted, mainstream media. Such is the tribulation of the (so-called) right-wing blogosphere.
I wasn’t alerted to the depth of this story until I read about it at The Other McCain a few days ago and after reading about it in a William Jacobson post at his Le-gal In-sur-rec-tion blog. However surreal this appears to be, it demonstrates the lengths that the leftists in this country will go to silence conservative voices on the blogosphere and elsewhere.
Whether it be Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, or others, there is a coordinated effort to stifle free speech in this country. Organizations like Media Matters suck up donations from the likes of George Soros and, through connections in the White House, coordinate smears and attacks on their opposition. Lesser organizations also receive donations from George Soros’ Tides Foundation and fellow liberals like Barbara Streisand, but their mission is the same: destroy conservatives on radio, the Internet and in the mainstream media to promote their leftist agenda.
This is a HUGE issue, as some of the best reporting on conservative issues has come from dedicated bloggers who have demonstrated the ability to objectively source a story and present a narrative that the mainstream media is no longer interested in. Conservative bloggers are now performing the function previously reserved for the mainstream media: telling the truth! As a result, they come under attack by the underworld of extreme, left-wing operatives.
I posted this video earlier this week, but I’m going to post it again:
Brett Kimberlin is a convicted felon and the notorious “Speedway Bomber” that wormed his way into the extreme, leftist network as a welcome addition. He is a celebrated “activist” that might receive adulation from Chicago thug politicians as an underground mercenary like Bill Ayers, willing to do their dirty work. He continues to push forward with his underground activities by virtue of tax-exempt, charitable trusts in which he’s involved.
I have followed Stacy McCain since the moment I first started blogging. Although I don’t agree with everything he says or posts, he’s an icon in the conservative blogosphere and he needs our support.
If enough conservative bloggers draw attention to this Kimberlin creep, we can send a powerful message: you might be able to bully one of us, but you can’t bully or intimidate all of us!
Nothing I’ve said above is conjecture. It is ALL documented and archived by one of Kimberlin’s present targets, the writer at Allergic to Bull, who dared help a friend at odds with Brett Kimberlin.
First off, let me tell you that I like Stacy McCain. His “The Other McCain” blog is very informative and entertaining. I’ve contributed to his “shoe-leather” fund on a number of occasions. But I am completely confused by his recent rant about not having access to what he calls “Team Sarah”. I presume he means Sarah’s inner circle. In a recent post, he wrote this:
I’m feeling like a mushroom here. IYKWIMAITYD.
UPDATE III: Dan Riehl rushes to join the Worldwide Universal Association of People Smarter Than Stacy McCain:
Whatever Palin is doing by way of preparation for a run is not what one is accustomed to seeing. Stacy is looking for the expected, not seeing it and concluding it’s too late for her. I’m looking at what I know and don’t know, while leaving a little room for what I don’t know I don’t know and concluding she’s running. Simple, isn’t it?
When I talked to Dan by phone a few minutes ago, he said, “Stacy don’t take it personally.” But when I am insulted — and to be purposefully excluded is to be insulted — it would compound my humiliation not to take notice of the insult.
Bear in mind that the people on Team Sarah have my phone number and e-mail address, and I know they read this blog. It wasn’t exactly a secret that I was in Iowa last week, and it was possible for them to let me know their itinerary. Instead, as always, they allow other news organizations — including liberal news organizations inimicable to their own interests — break exclusive news about their Iowa trip, while purposefully keeping me out of the loop. And when I dare take notice of these unsubtle backhands, I’m accused of being “too sensitive.”
When I want to make a fool out of myself, I don’t usually ask for help in doing so, and appreciate all this volunteer assistance from Team Sarah. Continue reading →
